Titian: Love, Desire, Death – a rare chance to see Titian’s epic mythological paintings reunited for the first time in over 400 years. The six narrative paintings – referencing stories from classical mythology – were painted by Titian between 1551 and 1562. The artist had been given free rein to depict any subject he liked by his generous and sympathetic patron, King Philip II of Spain. It’s a joy to see them all in the same space, seen by daylight at the National Gallery in London.
